I realized there is an omission in my blog of last Sundays activities (7/13). Last Sunday we went to Sete Cidades to visit these beautiful connected lakes. From vista do rei you have a great vantage point to see the lakes and their color. From here we took a 5km hike through the crater ridge (the area is a volcanic crater) and saw some beautiful scenic views of the lakes. When we arrived at the lakes there were kayaks awaiting us. We quickly got in the water and explored in pairs the blue and green water. Towards the end it started to rain a bit but we didn’t care we had a great time.
